  • Noise Safety

    As the economy turns around a big push has been focused on bringing manufacturing and factory jobs back to America. As these factories are beginning to pop up and more people are starting to be employed as workers in this industry it is important that we remember how important worker safety is in these working conditions. A factory floor can at times be potentially dangerous to be in and there are hazards that can happen at any time that employees must be aware of. Some industrial machines can be at...

  • Acoustic Flooring: The Hidden Noise Reducer

    Unlike other noise reduction materials in the soundproofing industry, the changes made to accomplish acoustic flooring cannot be seen by the naked eye. Although acoustic curtains are designed so that the reason for their presence is not known and acoustical ceilings can be decorated so that they look like aesthetic embellishments instead of sound barriers, they are still visible soundproofing materials. Acoustic flooring is a serious process, since the flooring material must be lifted so that soundproofing materials can be installed under the floor boards. This is done to reduce...

  • Noise Pollution and Environmental Responsibility

    Being environmentally friendly usually refers to recycling products, cutting down on one's carbon footprint and other actions that benefit the state of the earth and atmosphere. Because it is such a huge trend right now, it is the trash kind of pollution that we think about when we hear the word. However, the phrase noise pollution has been around for a long time. Although it is not as dire for the future of the human race, it is a problem in its own right that must be dealt with by...

  • The Sound Decision: Keeping the Peace with Soundproofing

    by Breana Cronk, IQS Editor Most depictions of suburban or even rural living portray a life of tranquility where one might spend evenings sitting in the rocker on the porch and listening to the orchestra of crickets and other critters. In reality, however, those crickets and critters can be quite loud. Not just the natural wildlife, but the neighborhood dog howling contest, the start up garage band and even the occasional traffic creates a ruckus known as noise pollution. A common disturbance in the suburbs, problems with noise control are...

Industry Information

Noise Pollution

Noise pollution is unwanted sound or environmental noise that is annoying, distracting, or physically harmful to those within hearing distance. If sound being produced can adversely affect human activity, the natural environment of wildlife or physical structures, it is considered to be noise pollution and therefore measures should be taken to reduce it or eliminate it.

Typically created by humans, noise pollution is harmful to health, welfare, and productivity. Transportation vehicles are the most significant sources of unwanted noise in every day life, with aircraft, railroad stock, trucks, buses, automobiles, and motorcycles all producing excessive noise. Construction equipment, like jackhammers and bulldozers, also produce substantial noise pollution, although this noise is often for concentrated and temporary periods of time. Noise intensity is measured in decibel units and a scale has already been determined as to which levels are suitable for comfortable listening levels for humans and which are not. An increased distance diminishes the decibel level that reaches the ears and is one way to lower the negative effects of noise pollution. Unwanted sound activity can not only be physically harmful and painful, resulting in hearing loss, stress and sleep loss; it can also decrease concentration, productivity, and peace of mind. Even though noise only stays in the air for a short time, its effects are cumulative in terms of temporary or permanent hearing loss.

There are many methods available for helping to reduce or eliminate noise pollution and this is a worthwhile endeavor as reducing noise pollution can be very advantageous. Most modern buildings are pre-designed with soundproofing materials such as acoustical ceilings, flooring and foam used in the construction process. In industrial settings for the workers' sake, acoustic curtains are used to dampen some of the excessive noise created by large machinery. There may be laws and hour restrictions for the use of some loud equipment, especially close to residential areas, or buildings such as hospitals or libraries and therefore government regulations may require facilities to abide by these. Sound absorption, vibration damping and sound barriers are all very common implementations of soundproofing materials used to reduce the effects of reverberations and sound wave travel. In addition, acoustical panels and ceilings can also provide relief from noise pollution in areas such as offices, schools and performance halls. Office equipment, factory machinery, appliances, power tools, hum from lighting fixtures and HVAC equipment, and audio entertainment systems are other common sources of noise pollution, although the levels of disruption may be less than that of other equipment.
